Significant Others

post #1 of 48
Thread Starter 
Since everyone liked my last thread, how about another? How about where we met our significant others? I'll start....

I met my DH about 15 years ago (are you ready for this?) on a computer chat room! We knew each other for about a year before we started dating, but only because we were both dating other folks. I guess God had other plans for us because he's my bestest friend in the whole world!
Oh, we have three kids... 8 yob, soon to be 8yog, and soon to be 6 yog. (The two oldest are only 2 1/2 months apert so they are like twins icon_lol.gif )

[quote="peacockplace"]Wow... I didn't know there were chat rooms that long ago!


Actually, it was called a Bulletin Board System at the time (BBS for short). We could post on topics or go to the chat room. At that time, however, it was mostly local people so we were able to meet at monthly brunches, or various types of gatherings. I was truely blessed by God with my husband. He's, like I said, my bestest friend ever!

Well, this is an interesting topic, my DH moved in with his father while attending college. That made him my next door neighbor. Suddenly my Golden retriever had to go outside every night around 5:30, just as he was coming in from work. It sparked many conversations,until one evening I was grilling out and explained that I had some how gotten carried away and had fixed way to much food. How can a man resist a good grilled burger, and baked potato hot off the grill as he is coming in from a long day.LOL Anyway, it worked! I guess it is true the way to a mans heart is thru his stomach.
We have been married 5 years in July.
We met in July 98
engaged July 99
married July 00
moved to Ohio July 01
first child July 02
Moved home to WV July 04
I can't wait until next month!!!!!!!

My dh and I were both active duty Air Force-I worked in the hospital-he was a cop-he was out playing football in the dorm parking lot (only female dorm next to the cop dorm--hmmmmmm-honor and protection???) Anyway, I had just come home from the hospital after having nasal surgery-was sitting on the front stoop when a stray football hit me-you guessed it-right in the nose!! After falling all over himself apologizing, he took me to the hospital to repair his damage-couldn't help but feel bad for him-we went out-have been together for over 27years-have a 24yo girl, 23yr boy and am raising a 4year old granddaughter! Keeps ya young!!

I too met my husband online. IRC.... which I guess is a precursor to chatrooms. Met in '93, married in '96. We have a 6yo and a 4yo.

He likes my new hobby icon_smile.gif Homemade cakes don't take quite as long to make as homemade sweaters.

met DH when I was going out with his friend icon_lol.gif That relationship didn't last very long and DH called at the first opportunity. Met in '85, married in '87. the last 18 years have been the best in my life. He's a special breed...he's a contractor married to a police officer! Kind of put a new twist on how the police always get their man icon_lol.gif No kids....had a golden retriever but sadly she is no longer with us. Plan on another in the not too distant future...Goldens are just the best!

my hubby and I met playing billards. I joined a league and his team just so I could meet him icon_smile.gif It took almost a year to get him to go on a date with me. He is 18 years my senior and he was unsure about starting a relationship with someone so much younger than him. Long story short, a mutal (sp?) friend of ours convinced him to take me out and the rest is history. We have been together for 9 years and married 6 years. No kids, 2 Shelties -Holmes and Bandit they are, are babies! icon_smile.gif

I must agree my Golden is 13 years old now and I don't know what I would do without him. He has been with me longer than the hubby or child.

I was the maid of honour at my cousin's wedding and he was the best man in March of '96. We met on the Thursday, partied on Friday, did our wedding duties on Saturday, went out on our first date on Sunday, exchanged 'I love you's' by Monday morning, and I flew home to Calgary, Alberta that afternoon. By May we were engaged and by July I had moved back to Ontario. We were married 18 months less a day after we met. Whirlwind to say the least! So here we are 5 years married and 5 kids! A 13 yr old girl, 9 yr old boy and three 2 yr old girls. Whew!

My dh and i both worked for Whataburger back in 99. I was a senior in high school and on my frist day of work he literaly (sp) bumped into me. He says he fell in love with me the first day he saw me. He asked me out everyday for the next 4 months before i finally agreed to go out with him. We have been together ever since.

We got married in 2002 and had our first and only child together in 2003. We have 3 kids alltogether. The older two are his from a previous relationship. They live with us full time and call me mom. I have been taking care of those boys since i was 17.

There it was Halloween 2003 - I had went all out on my costume this year - spent a lot of money - I had a feeling something big was going to happen tonight. There I was dressed in a black patent leather French Maid's outfit complete with braided pig tails, black fishnet stockings, low-cut bustier and white stilletto heels. I felt like a diva icon_surprised.gif

There were 4 of us friends that had plans to do something (I can't remember what it was now), but my best friend had called the day before Halloween to ask if we wanted to change our plans and go up to his aunt & uncle's Halloween party in Iowa 2 1/2 hours away (we live in Missouri). I really did not want to drive almost 3 hours just to go to a party because I didn't think I'd have fun. I even told my best friend no because his aunt's son had a well known crush on me and I knew he'd be there so I just really did not want to go at all, but then I had spent all of this money on my costume and had been planning this that I didn't want to be left doing nothing.

So the 4 of us decide to go to Iowa - although it wasn't easy. We didn't even make the decision to finally go until around 7pm on Halloween, so we go and gas up his car and get ready to leave when the driver's side door will not shut, period. We couldn't drive 3 hours holding a heavy door closed. The only other option for a comfortable ride was to borrow his grandpa's van - but to do that we had to put the 2 rear seats back in - and then we had to go get more gas even though we had all put the gas money into his car. It didn't look good.

We finally get on the road to Iowa and end up at the party around 11pm. It was such a magical night and one of the best of my life. I was the life of the party, everyone flocked to me including women! I couldn't believe it so I just went with it and had a blast.

I was the center of attention including holding the attention of my future boyfriend and his best friend. One of them said I looked better than Britney Spears and when I asked who said it - they both argued over which one had. I was attracted to Jon from the moment I saw him. We spent the rest of the party getting to know each other and he still hadn't asked for my number before we were getting ready to leave. I thought what the hell? I just invested a night of my time & effort and he's just going to let me go. So right before I left I said so did you want my number? And he looked stunned, and said but you live 3 hours away, I said so? Do you want my number or not? He quickly left and came back with a pen and we exchanged numbers.

He gave me a strong hug and we said goodbye. Four days later on a Weds, I decided to call him, he was shocked to hear from me, said he never thought he'd hear from me again. We talked for 7 hours - I had the $400 cell phone bill to prove it. I called him again the following night and on the spur of the moment I asked if he wanted to spend the weekend with me but I forwarned him that I owned a handgun and knew how to use it. I think that almost scared him into NOT coming. So I drove to Iowa to pick him up, we didn't get back to my place until about 2:30am. As soon as I finished showing him around my place, I leaned in and kissed him softly. I remember saying that was the kiss I wanted after I had left him at the party. We spent the weekend together and on our last night he professed he was already in love with me. I took him back to Iowa and felt so empty when I left. He felt the same way too. A week later we talked about him moving in with me since I had a great career and was not willing to re-locate. A little less than 3 weeks after we met, we were making a home together. And here it is now almost 2 years later - I'm hoping he'll propose to me within this year! And to think I almost didn't even go to that party up in Iowa! icon_lol.gif
